How I Turned a Washing Machine Motor into a Permanent Generator

In this video we will show you how to turn a washing machine motor into a permanent generator. This is an excellent source of backup power in the event of a power outage.

If you ever find yourself in a power outage situation, don't forget to check out this tutorial! We'll show you how to turn a washing machine motor into a permanent generator that can provide you with enough electricity to power your home for a few hours. This is a great way to stay safe and get through a power outage without any problems.

In this video I explain to you how to modify a three-phase motor to use it as single-phase.

The motor coupling (delta or star coupling) and the choice of capacitor are essential to guarantee the correct operation of the motor.

I calculated the capacitor capacity needed with a simple formula 14 micro farad per amp (14 x the number of amps in triangle coupling) and purchased the closest standard capacitor value 45 micro farad in my case.

You should know that a delta-coupled motor loses 50% of its power when starting and 30% for the rest of the cycle.
